This is actually a semi good story. While there were infractions they are very small in nature. I have seen other cities with much much bigger issues. Some of the state statutes are difficult to navigate and occasionally mistakes are made (like the BWS). So long as the city is repaid and the incidents are non recurring I myself a taxpayer can understand.

why the low reimbursement for travel, ie the federal allowable business milage is $0.56, not 45 cents

also there is a federal per diem guideline per city - why not use it
